During his studies, he found out what unused potential lies behind hemp as a raw material for a more sustainable world. This led to his passion, namely to give hemp a (new) meaning in our society.
Marijn’s hemp career started in 2014 with employment at the Hanf Museum in Berlin, and with a crowdfunding campaign H.E.M.P. together with the manufacturer for hemp building materials Hanffaser Uckermark eG in Prenzlau, Germany.
The cooperation was further expanded, since 2015 Marijn has been working as a purchaser for hemp raw material and as a coordinator for hemp cultivation and the hemp harvest for the partners of the hemp fiber factory. Since 2019, Marijn has also been active as a freelance consultant for hemp cultivation and processing. In addition, Marijn would be elected as Vice President with a focus on commercial hemp when the cannabis industry association was founded.
